Dunes On Mars Look An Awful Lot Like The Starfleet Insignia

It appears that some Starfleet crew has disobeyed the Prime Directive and exerted their influence over another planet. NASA shared some photos of dunes on Mars, and they bear a remarkable resemblance to Star Trek’s Delta Shield. The V-shaped piles of sand were photographed by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter at the end of December, and I don’t think they could look more like Starfleet’s insignia unless someone sculpted the dunes by hand. It’s about as perfect as nature gets.

Check out one more image after the break.
